SOCIAL ADVOCACY AND THE SOCIAL WORK EXPERIENCE
2023 Fall Term
UW Extended Campus Online SW150
Social work as a profession, and social institution, influenced by, and influencing American society. Presents an overview of the problems and issues addressed within social services environments, and how to advocate for social change. Students will develop an understanding of the historical progression of social welfare policies and programs and the evolution and contribution of the social work profession within this context. We explore three critical areas: Ethical citizenship and frameworks that guide social welfare states, the role ethical frameworks play in guiding practice, and the social problems and human groups that are the focus of generalist social work practice.
